A teenager from Pennsylvania was furiously behind when his & # 39; Trump Make America Great Again & # 39; cap was blurry on a photo used in his school's yearbook.

Jeremy Gebhart [16] and his friend wore red hats bearing the name of the 45th president for the Spirit Week of Littlestown High School in October last year.

But when the yearbook was printed, the student discovered that the motif with the slogan Donald Trump that had become popular again during his 2016 election campaign had been edited.

& # 39; We felt they had wiped our hats away! & # 39; Gebhart told Fox 43. Add: & # 39; I just think the person who did this doesn't like Trump. & # 39;

The teenager and his friend notice that there was something different about their caps and he said to Fox: & # 39; We felt they were blurring our hats! & # 39;

& # 39; I just think he wants to help our country and I think he is. Everyone has a first amendment that has the right to freedom of expression, and they can think what they want, say what they want, but they cannot take it away from other people. & # 39;

The child's mother is also furious that the logos on the photo have been deleted.

Although her son is not old enough to vote, the mother says she & # 39; furious & # 39; is because he simply expresses support for the American leader in his way.

The mother points out that wearing a MAGA cap & # 39; does not do anything illegal & # 39 ;.

& # 39; It's very shocking, someone did this on purpose to erase that Trump logo and make their own statement, & # 39; said Lorraine. & # 39; It is good to disagree with people's views, but what is not OK is taking freedom of expression and using it to take someone else away. & # 39;

Gebhart said about the president: & # 39; I just think he wants to help our country and I think he is & # 39;

They said an investigation is ongoing.

& # 39; I am aware of the yearbook situation and an error has been made. The error was not noticed during the editorial preview process prior to printing, & superintendent Christopher E. Bigger told Fox.

& # 39; We apologize for the yearbook club. It is not the policy or practice of the district to censor speech improperly. Please understand that we work with young adults practicing to become citizens and what better place to do this than in a school environment.

& # 39; We need to find a way to have a civil discourse on emotionally charged issues with students where the facts are understood and the ability to learn is available. & # 39;

It is not the first time that the student feels victimized because he shows his support for Trump. In March, Florida teenager Gunnar Johansson accused an assistant from the school to shake off his MAGA hat.

His mother Lorraine said: "It is good to disagree with people's views, but what is not OK is taking your freedom of expression and using it to take someone else away"
